Boston bomber found guilty

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the 21-year old surviving member of pair of Chechen brothers, was found guilty on Wednesday of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing that killed three people and injured 264 others.
 
The jury will now decide whether to sentence him to death.
 
After 11 hours of deliberations over two days, the jury found him guilty of all 30 criminal counts he faced.
 
The court was full of bombing survivors including the parents of 8-year-old Martin Richard, the youngest victim.
 
After the verdict was read, Karen Brassard, whose left leg was badly injured by one of the bombs, said she was glad that Tsarnaev had shown no emotion.
 
The trial will resume early next week for the second phase due to impose Tsarnaev's punishment.
